Allardyce's West Ham future uncertain

West Ham manager, Sam Allardyce, has said that he will not shed light over his future at Upton Park.

The 58 year-old has been in charge since last summer and guided the Hammers back into the Barclays Premier League at the first time of asking.

Co-owner David Gold released a statement yesterday saying contract talks with Allardyce will not open until top-flight safety has been assured.

"As David Sullivan and I have always maintained, we will sit down and discuss Sam's contract situation once our Premier League status has been confirmed and not before," Gold's statement read.

"This is purely because the three of us don't want anything to distract attention from our aim of finishing as high up the Premier League table as possible."
